Title: Found 64 scout, 4 cyl, should I buy??



Myself and a few buddies have been scouring the fields, wrecking yards, and other connections looking for a good inexpensive trail rig to build up (under $750). We all have knowledge when it comes to Toyotas and Jeeps but are very unfamiliar with Internationals. What we want to find is a chassis that has a strong reliable drive train with the room for a V-8. It needs to be street legal, 33" or 35", and have narrow axles for the trails here in Oregon. We don't care to much about the body as long as the main cab is fairly straight since we want to build a exoskeleton roll cage/bed/front grill.

1964 Scout, 4 cyl that is not running, excellent body for the age, has been parked for 10-15 years, owner is asking $700 or obo

Snakeman forgot to also ask:

Would this be a good rig? Is there another chassis other than obvious the CJ-X or FJ-40? What drive-train components could be on this year and how do we check this?? Last but no least is there a problem with the front axle??

Any and all advice would be appreciative.

I didn't write that upper post Snakeman, I think the XJ_Mtn_Goat was using my login from the last time I was on his computer, but yes those were issues we need to find out. Saw a killer 84 4runner for $1900 in the recent truck trader, front page... Wish I had $$...
